KNOW YOUR BEEKEEPER

- Beekeeping Since 2004 -

     I was just 12 years old when introduced to beekeeping in 2004, not as a hobbyist but as a hired hand for a mid-Pennsylvania honey producer. I learned the beekeeping craft not by reading books or watching videos but by putting my hands in hive boxes and working side-by-side with veterans. Bee yards became a reliably peaceful place to retreat, and I've had a special relationship with bees ever since.

      

     In 2017, my wife Jessie and I decided to turn this longtime relationship with bees into a family side-business. We both worked full time jobs as we brought the bees up on the side, and Hogback Apiaries was born. Hard-earned lessons came fast, but with hard work and determination we were able to grow healthy honey bee colonies to thrive in our local environment. 

     Thank God, as of 2023, we are stronger than ever. Our bee colonies are thriving and growing, and we now manage hundreds more. We moved and built a larger bee barn with extraction room, wood shop and office. With all the change, it seemed fitting to give the business a new name. Sleepy Creek Honey was born. Some things remain the same -- most importantly our mission. We aim to honor God by lovingly tending our bees, turning out high quality bees and honey products for our neighbors, and helping to raise up the next generation of beekeepers.
